Scott brothers do Poe
Ridley and Tony Scott are getting together again to produce a film based on a famous Edgar Allan Poe short story called The Tell-Tale Heart.
The story is narrated by someone who has murdered an old man and hidden his body parts underneath the floor boards of his house, and he cannot get the murder out of his mind and believes that the man's heart is still beating.
I wonder how they can turn this into a film, and if the concentration will be more on the inward madness and paranoia or will it be mixed up with a higher paced thriller more suited to the Scott's usual style?
Whichever, it is great that we're seeing some more of this classic writer, let's see some strong adaptations from his excellent work.
